weekend wrap up

That extra hour yesterday felt like it added a whole extra day onto my weekend.

 On Friday night Joel and I anticipated going out for 1 drink and 1 appetizer, and of course, that turned into 3 drinks (each) and a blown out meal. We went to Socca, which like I told you, has the perfect balance of fancy and comfort. We started out with a escargot which was sub-par. I felt like it tasted like coffee, and it really didn’t do it for me. The best escargot I’ve had in the city is at Paris Club. If you go, you have to promise me you will try their escargot. For dinner I had their scallops which were perfectly cooked and just the right portion size – and a French martini, which was made very well. Joel went with the Rabbit Risotto, which too, was really good.

We walked home after another round of drinks, and I fell asleep on the couch quickly after that.

On Saturday we both woke up and went for runs (9 miles for Joel, and 3 for me)…..and then ran around the city running errands. We needed silly things like the following from Crate & Barrell.

On Saturday night, we had friends over for pizza and beer, and then went to a bar down the street from us to watch the LSU v. Bama game…no comments there.

Sunday we woke up and went to visit Joel’s nephew, Luke. He’s getting so big and is at a really fun age and was so good for us all morning.

When we got home we ordered a movie off the TV and went with Crazy, Stupid, Love...which, if you haven’t seen it, you now have plans for this evening.

I made pasta last night, we had a few glasses of wine, and now it’s back to reality.

I don’t have any plans after work this week and I’m keeping it that way. I want to try and save some $, eat like a normal person and keep the alcohol at bay. I say this every Monday, don’t I?

Hope you all had a great, extra long, weekend.

Here’s to a new week!


  1. Sounds like a fun weekend! We went to Le Colonial for dinner Friday night and then out to the Hubbard Inn on Saturday night. It was all fun! I have not been to Paris Club, I want to go! :)

  2. Sounds like you had a great weekend! And that was QUITE a game Saturday night!
